Criminal Defense Lawyer in Avondale, AZ

Criminal defense lawyers are lawyers who have been trained and educated on how to effectively protect companies and individuals who have been charged with criminal offenses. Our specialization is in the field of criminal law in Avondale, AZ. This is the field of law that is generally concerned with crimes.

Criminal law has the following functions:

  • Regulation of social conduct
  • Defines what is threatening to properties, moral welfare, safety, and health of people
  • Defines the appropriate punishments for people who did something against the law

Criminal law is different from civil law. In criminal law, the emphasis is geared on resolving disputes and determining the right compensation that should be given to victims of crimes. Civil law, on the other hand, emphasizes more on the punishment.

We will educate you on the objectives of the law and the differences. In the event that you lose the case, you will have a sufficient understanding of the motivations behind the imposition of the punishment.

Here are the objectives:

  • Restoration – This is a theory of punishment that is centered on the victim’s circumstance. The victim’s injury will be repaired as a result. In other words, the punishment will enable the victim to return to the position that he had before the commission of the crime.
  • Rehabilitation – The aim here is to transform the offender into a useful member of the community. The rehabilitation is expected to prevent the offender from committing more offenses in the future. The offender will be convinced that what he did was wrong and unconstructive.
  • Incapacitation – This type of punishment has the purpose of alienating the offender from society. As a result of this, the public is deemed to have been given protection from the offender’s conduct. Prison sentences, death penalty, and banishment are examples under this type.
  • Deterrence – There are two types of deterrence punishment: individual deterrence and general deterrence. The first type is focused on the offender only. Sufficient penalty is given to the offender hoping that they will no longer commit crimes in the future.General deterrence, on the other hand, is more focused on the effect of the punishment given on the society as a whole. Because of the punishment given, other individuals will be careful not to commit the same crime that was committed by the offender.
  • Retribution – The idea is those who offend should be punished one way or the other. This is the motivation that is widely acceptable. Criminals took advantage or caused damage against others. Because of this, they should be given punishments so that they too can feel disadvantaged. This is the act of “balancing the scales”.

Be honest with your lawyer, whether you are guilty or not of the crime with which you have been charged. Details of what actually happened are especially useful to us in preparing your criminal defense case in Avondale, AZ courts. We have various options to use to convince the other party to settle with a lower form of punishment. Make sure that we have only the truth with which to work on.
